commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

More on the Harold Ford vs Kirsten Gillibrand thing….

Glen Thrush of Politico has picked up the story on the Harold Ford vs Kirsten Gillibrand poll sampling….And that’s all it is now folks….

But Thrush and several of the people who comment on the story on his post correctly point out the Ford ran in Tennessee as a conservative democrat(well, he was running as a black democrat in the South)…and that may not go too well in New York…..

But I will also point out that New York State has had a republican Governor for 12 years until Spitzer, and Paterson showed up….aAlsoNew York City has had a republican Mayor for the last 20 years…….

Stay tuned for more…….

From out in left field….How about a poll pitting Harold Ford Jr. against Kristen Gilibrand????

Seems a guy in New York got polled about Harold Ford Jr. running against Kristen Gilibrand  in the primary for the democratic New York Senate seat…..yea!…how about that??

Last time I heard Harold Ford Jr. was doing his thing in Tennesse…..

Here’s the link to thealbanyproject.com story…….

I wonder if someone is putting these guys on?……

Ah….I’ve done some checking around…..it might interest everyone to know two things …First of all, Ford’s wife is a New York public relations person for Carolina Herrara…Second, Ford is currently a visiting professor at New York University these days…..now I’d be willing to bet, he and his wife have diggs in New York City…making him a New Yorker these days…..well I’be darned…..now that would be a hell of race, huh?

Note: Carolyn McCarthy has come for Gilibrand …ONLY  IF SHE WINS THE DEMOCARTIC PRIMARY FOR SENATOR……does McCarthy know something we all don’t?

Ole’ Arlen is still in the lead……….

People who think the senior senator from Pennsylvania is going to get rolled in the upcoming democratic primary, after switching parties, will be in for a surprise………..He currently leads Sestak by 27% points, and in the general election he would beat Toomey by 8% points…….There is a but here…big undecideds right now…….46% in the primary and 25% in the general………..

He’s holding his own right now………stay tuned…….
